Airport sets post-Katrina record

NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans’ airport surpassed 8.6 million passengers in 2012, a post-Katrina record that maintains an upward trend even as similar airports across the nation experienced a slight decline, according to airport figures. But the good year at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International still fell short of its passenger totals before the 2005 hurricane. (Source: New Orleans Times-Picayune, 03/06/13)
